Franchise: Resident Evil

Annette Birkin is one of the secondary characters from the Resident Evil series whom appeared in the 2nd game of the series. Annette is the wife of Dr. William Birkin (whom became Resident Evil 2's primary antagonist) and the mother of Sherry Birkin. Annette was a researcher scientist whom worked at Umbrella along with her husband until the outbreaks occurred and they both became increasingly paranoid about their work with umbrella and each-other. In the original Resident Evil 2, Annette was depicted as incredibly paranoid and violent but in Resident Evil DC she became a more sympathetic and caring character.

Today on the Resident Evil VC section we have a little VC for this lady whom is the mother of Sherry and Wife of William Birkin... ANNETTE BIRKEN! In the original Resident Evil 2 Annette was voiced by Jennifer "Mystique" Dale. While Jennifer's voice for the role does sound rather similar to her Mystique voice I had no problem with that as Jennifer's voice for the role still does work. Say what you will about how in Resident Evil 2 Annette was a paranoid but whom seems to be more concerned of her husband's resume than anything else, but Jennifer's work on the role was not the problem here. Jennifer's performance for the role did suit Annette's rather paranoid persona pretty well and is a good example of the voice work in Resident Evil 2.

In Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles in the game's depiction of Resident Evil 2, Deborah Sale "Cecile" Butler managed to take over the role here. While Annette still pretty much played the same role as she did in the original Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles gives a somewhat nicer depiction of her and Deborah's performance as her does reflect that pretty well. Deborah's voice for Annette was softer (but not too much) as her performance had a more motherly and sympathetic feel that certainly suited how RE:DC characterized her. Overall both of these ladies did well with the role in their own way but I will go with Deborah Sale Butler a bit more (but perhaps that is a bit more because of how Annette was a bit more likable in RE:DC than in the original Resident Evil 2).

To be honest I prefer Jennifer Dale better, Deborah sounds far too young

I like Jennifer Dale's version of the character better, just because I prefer the cool and icy tone.
